This homeowner in South Hadley, MA had called and complained about having cold floors. One of the things we always look out for is the rim joist in the basement. In this case, like most other homes, the rim joist was not insulated. It was letting in cold and dry air in in the winter and hot humid air in in the summer.

To fix this problem we have to First remove any old fiberglass batting. Then we spray our 2 part expanding spray foam to seal up all gaps and penetrations. Now we have stop the convection and conduction loss that was causing this homeowner problems.

Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this home will be far more comfortable!

This homeowner in South Hadley, MA called us out to their home to remove and replace their old insulation. This home had very old, fiberglass insulation in their attic. Fiberglass insulation is very fluffy and allows air to easily seep through, and exit or enter the home.The attic is always the first priority in regards to insulation.  

First we needed to remove all of the old, nasty fiberglass insulation. We remove, bag up, and properly dispose of the old insulation. We do our air sealing before we install new insulation. This is because without air sealing you are not properly sealing the home up. We air seal all of the top plates with one-part fire retardant foam. Now we can insulate! We blow in our TruSoft cellulose insulation, this fills all of the gaps, cracks, and odd shaped voids in the attic.

This will result in a more comfortable, and energy efficient home, thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions!

This homeowner in South Hadley, MA contacted us about having old insulation in the attic which needed to be replaced. As you can see, the previous insulation only barely made it up as high as the joist, which on average is 8 to 10 inches, only half of what is required for a home!

We removed this insulation and sealed any air leaks that were present to ensure that none of the air this homeowner pays to heat will escape through the top of the house. We the installed 20 full inches of our TruSoft cellulose insulation. We also created a catwalk to make it safe and easy to reach heating and cooling equipment that resides in the attic.

Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver this homeowner can live more comfortably and enjoy having lower energy costs!

South Hadley's Leading Spray Foam Insulation Contractor

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for insulation if you’re looking to increase your comfort & decrease your energy bills. Spray foam insulation is truly the best option for home insulation and here are a few reasons why. Spray Foam Insulation provides an air barrier due to its ability to fill gaps and cracks. It is also great at staying in the hard to reach areas because of its super-adhesive qualities. Spray foam insulation is also waterproof, unlike fiberglass and cellulose insulation. Water will not be able to pass through the foam which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam is sprayed as a liquid and then expands and hardens to fill voids and gaps. There is never any chance for an area to be missed or bypassed. Once cured, spray foam insulation will stay in place for decades to come and will never shift or settle like fiberglass. To ensure your home has the best insulation available and your energy bills are low, switch to spray foam insulation today!

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation Include:

  • Spray foam works in all areas of the home
  • Has a greater R-value
  • Acts as an air sealant
  • Is waterproof
  • Leaves no gaps

Job Stories From South Hadley, MA
Moving a Dryer Vent in South Hadley, MA

This homeowner in South Hadley, MA called us initially hoping that she would be able to get her basement windows replaced due to them being very inefficient. This home had mold -- in part due to the humidity from outside coming in. When our Home Comfort Specialist came out to the home, he noticed that there was a dryer vent going through one window. Some dryer vents are installed through a basement window pane simply because it was more convenient for the installer than to do the job correctly. The problem is this eliminates some glass and light, and looks unprofessional. Further, it becomes an obstacle to installing a new energy efficient window which has 2 layers of energy efficient glass.


We were able to help this customer. A 4 1/2” hole was bored through the siding and the rim joist. A durable high quality metal “Pro Hood” dryer vent with a factory exterior finish was installed in the hole. With its spring loaded precision damper, the Pro Hood seals out drafts far better than lesser quality hoods such as plastic and thin aluminum models. Then the dryer hose was attached. Results - The window can now be replaced with an energy efficient one without the unsightly old dryer vent obstacle.

Insulating a Basement in South Hadley, MA

This homeowner in South Hadley, MA called us because she was hoping to get her basement insulated. When our Home Comfort Specialist arrived, he noticed that her basement was not insulated. The joints and gaps between all the framing members in the basement allow for a lot of air leakage into the house. The rim joist (the perimeter of the floor framing system along the exterior of the house) is seldom insulated and never air sealed. Results - cold floors, drafty, uncomfortable rooms, cold basement/lower level, higher heating and cooling bills and more condensation in the basement or crawl space in the summer.


Luckily, Fogarty's Home Services had a perfect solution for this customer. We were able to insulate the rim joist in her basement using spray foam. Two part expanding spray foam was installed on the rim joist and over the sill plate to seal all air leaks from the outside and insulate this important area of their home. Our spray foam has a high insulation value per inch of R7, and because it expands, it seals all cracks and gaps and joints where air from the outside enters the home. Results - warmer floors, less drafts, more comfortable rooms, the house is easier to heat and costs less to heat, less summertime condensation on cold basement surfaces.

Old, Dirty Attic Insulation Removal in South Hadley, MA

Attic insulation in your home can get pretty nasty. Over many years it sits there collecting dirt, dust, pollen, bugs, rodent feces (from mice, squirrels, bats, etc.), bird droppings and nests of all kinds of undesirable things. It's possible that old insulation like this can be moved aside for a proper air sealing job that must be done prior to adding enough TruSoft™ blown cellulose insulation to today's standards - but why not remove the old, nasty insulation from your home and start fresh? Fogarty's Home Services will conduct the unpleasant task of removing the damaged, soiled insulation in your attic. Batt insulation is bagged and then the attic is vacuumed to remove pieces, parts and dust. Loose fill insulation is vacuumed with a giant vacuum located outside with giant filter bags and a very long, fat hose. Result - Now your attic is clean! It's ready for proper air sealing and installation of clean, new, fresh TruSoft™ cellulose insulation or one of our other Dr. Energy Saver strategies to make your home comfortable and energy efficient.

We need insulation removal asap. We have a rodent problem. Thanks.
Project Location: South Hadley, MA
I am looking to convert a 22' X 28' basement into a living space with a bedroom, full bath, and a third small storage room. The project would include replacement of four basement windows, two of which would be a conversion to crankouts with window wells. Two other windows would need to be sealed off. The location would require installation of an ejector pump to handle the toilet, sink, and shower outflows. There is a bulkhead door to the backyard that would have to be roofed and finished to use as a regular exit. A rough diagram is attached.

We just moved in yo a house build in the 70s and the attic is very concerning. Had some breathing issues already from looking in attic, and cleaning basement. We want insulation that is as simple and effective as possible, we are worried about chemicals and irritants. We have a 13 month old and are expecting another baby in April. We want this taken care of before it gets too cold and this is our first appraisal.
